witnessing without mind
1) m: this mini-movie by matt ogens I think filming 1 week in 101 year old woman's life has always intrigued effected my own fascination with what we are 2) Summarising here The 101 year old woman says in the early part of this mini-movie that the mind becomes twisted really affirming the distorting nature of mind itself In the middle somewhere of this very short movie nearing the end she continues to affirm that she doesn't remember her father her sisters really she doesn't remember any-thing And in the end she concludes she wishes sadly that she had a mind because all she has the clock to look at 3) But from the our ignorances despair/sadness/fears or forgetfulness is in the misconstrued belief that the loss of our very own memories & thus our own misidentification of mind as if it is actually our very own self is actually a loss of our essential self ?? 4) When truly it is not us since the evidence is in 101 women's commentaries that there is a witness observing the loss of all her or our own memories And yes this proves to us as the witnessing that what we essentially are remains without even the slightest recollections of any or all our memories And so we remain unaffected as the witness witnessing the loss of our mind 5) thus only when we are ignorant/forgetful/misconstrued in our understanding do we suffer with/without mind

excellent vignette about aging
There are some well-chosen shots in this film and I like how the weekday titles are inserted into the architecture. Just feelings and reflections about getting old from someone already there and there for a while already, and all the more interesting because who ever really asks how it feels?
